Outside of his role within Australia’s elite House export, there is something unchallengeable about the consistent force of Dirty South and his Phazing label. Carrying forward the uplifting hallmarks now synonymous with his often replicated sound, Dragan Roganović is joined by label protégé Michael Brun for a shot of hope for modern Progressive House with Phazing Radio-premiered ‘Rift’.

While the stereotype goes that Sweden remain the untimely key holders to emotive synth play, the cross-nation duo pick up right where ‘City Of Dreams‘ left off to prove the vast majority wrong with a universally accessible injection of angelic club fuel. But beneath the waterfall of colorful synths and heartwarming charisma, there is something inherently sincere in Dirty South and Michael Brun’s approach that leads this beautiful song with unmistakable soul.

Update (12/11): Out November 26th on Phazing Records. Official preview now available.

  • Skön, men redan fem sekunder in i låten så visste man hur hela låten skulle ”go down” så satt säga.


  • beautiful!

  • Dirty South is one of the few that can actually produce songs that make your emotions flow. Very good job!

  • I was going to say while i was listening that preview i heard that song at LoL, sure enough the second vid is him playing it out for the first time at Guv.

  • boooring

  • Boring? Come on man, this pretty good stuff.

  • Sounds pretty generic….

  • Yes boring. Why not take the risk to do something new?

  • While listening to a Deadmau5 Q&A over Ustream, he said something that i think about everytime Dirty South comes out with a new production. A fan asked him why he rarely does collaborations and he stated that he simply doesnt need to to make a great tune and believe it or not many people who collaborate in the electronic scene do so because they have troubling producing on their own and need help. Now think back to Dirty South’s productions since about last summer. i dont think hes produced a track that wasnt a remix, collaboration, or an edit of a track in an incredibly long time. Now dont get me wrong Dirty South actually is one of my favorite producers but what Deadmau5 said rings in my ears everytime he comes out with something, like here. Im starting to fear that Dragan cant produce anything on his own

  • Same with Seb Ingrosso?

  • Fantastic track!

  • @Josh that’s really not fair to Dirty South, just look at Phazing and We Are. Also his remixes of Devil’s Work and Coming Home might as well be originals as they entirely different than the original track, especially Devil’s Work. I see what you’re saying but in the case of Dirty South that quote does not apply.

  • Simple, yet beautiful

  • how is this boring? loving dirty south’s style at the moment
